“Lilia why does it say that you are a slave?”
I calmed down and asked Lilia.
What answer will I get, I’m very tense.
“That’s because I’m an assistant.”
I see, an assistant.
“I don’t understand!! I mean, are you really okay with this!?”
“Of course!! I volunteered for myself!!”
“The Heaven School.”
School? They have schools for slaves in this world?
“Then, why did this Heaven School chose me? There must have been others. Good heroes.”
“I wasn’t the one choosing, but your personality is fitting for a hero-sama!!”
A self-proclaimed hero though.
“You didn’t become a slave just because of that right?”
“Ah, I applied for that.”
Oh? Is that so?
“But to willingly become a slave……”
“That is, of course, to become strong and earn a lot of money!!”
“Huh? You are wicked after all!!”
Don’t you have a different reason!? Well, being honest is good.
“That Heaven School, what is it? Normal school?”
“Yes. A school.”
“Why does that school train a hero’s slave?”
“That is a long story. Is that alright?”
“Of course. Go ahead please.”
“Understood. This world is a world with heroes, in comparison worlds like the Earth are just babies. They are classified as young worlds. Do you follow?”
“Then continuing. The world I am from is the oldest world, it is in charge of all other worlds. As a new world gets created, its world concept is determined.”
“The worlds are made?”
“To make a world, rules are needed to tie things up. To establish other rules, basic rules are essential. And to obey the rules, punishments are necessary. And to receive the punishment, a leader who carries out the punishment is needed.”
“Something like a king? But then, a hero wouldn’t be necessary.”
Lilia shook her head in disapproval,
“To become a king, one must be revered by people. However, when he becomes a king, the people will become a nuisance and he will become arrogant. Therefore, an existence to correct the king is needed!!”
“But then there is no reason for Lilia to become a slave, is there?”
“To support a hero-sama is my priority. Therefore a position of a slave is just right.
“Is that so…… Then, what I’m supposed to do from now on?”
“Think like a hero-sama. I will follow you.”
So all is on me.
“But, why are you a hero’s slave? I mean, what the hell is a slave anyway?”
“It means to be the hero’s assistant. There is a hierarchical ranking for slaves too. In most cases, if a slave does not obey the master’s commands, it dies. Something lighter is a companion slave. I aim for this.”
“These companion slaves, do they have any restrictions?”
“Nothing in particular, well, just nominal.”
